Much of the material contained in this pamphlet was col- 
lected incidentally while investigating the antecedents, history 
and descendants of "Old John Ogden," of Elizabethtown, to 
whom the ancestor^ of John Ogden, of Fairfield was probably 
a brother. The records of Fairfield, Conn., were most care- 
fully and thoroughly examined by Mr. Lawrence VanAlstyne 
and every available local authority consulted with the result 
given herein. Extensive correspondence with various mem- 
bers of the family has been had, and many records have been 
examined and compared to complete the genealogy. It is 
not supposed, however, that that result has been attained, but 
it is believed that this publication mil lead to further correc- 
tions and supplementary records, the filling in of dates, &c., 
which will be available for a larger and more extensive work 
hereafter. All information, whether in correction or addition 
to what is herein contained, may be sent to Wm. Ogden

JOHN OGDEN, 



John Ogden of Fairfield, N. J., was the son of Richard 
Ogden, senior, of Fairfield, Conn., whose estate was inventor- 
ied April 18, 1687. On the loth of June of that year distri- 
bution was made of his estate, and his widow, Mary Ogden, 
was appointed administratrix and guardian of the youngest son 
John. It appears from this order of distribution and other 
records that the children of Richard were 
Richard^ ' ' pretending to be the eldest son yet is not the first 
born son," who married 1679, Sarah, daughter of Thom- 
as Staple. 
David, who married Abigail Sherwood. 
John, afterwards of New Jersey. 
Hannah, wife of Sergeant Samuel Ward. 
Thankful, wife of Daniel Silliman. 
Elizabeth, wife of Daniel Meeker. 

Mrs. John Pine, thus mentioned in the record, "and where- 
as John Pine had in marriage with a daughter of ye de- 
ceased, a child." 

Oct. 27, 1690, John Ogden, his mother being dead, chose 
as his guardian his brother-in-law. Sergeant Ward, who died 
before Jan. 16, 1692, but no new guardian was then appoint- 
ed. May 5, 1694, John Ogden's name appears as a witness to 
a release. March 14, 1695, he sells land to John Sturges, and 
Dec. 11, 1696, he buys land of his cousin, Edman Ward, adm'r 
Oct. 2, 1700, John Ogden "of ffairfield in New West Jarsey," 
sells land in Fairfield, Conn., which was part of his share of 
his father, Richard Ogden's estate, to Samuel Cobbett, and 
again July 5, 1705, being "of New Fairfield in Cohansey," 
he sells his share of the commons which came from his fath- 
er's estate to Jonathan Sturges. It appears he married 1st 
Mary Dimon but afterwards Sarah , the latter being- 
named in his will, which is dated Dec. 21, 1745, and was 
proved March 26, 1746, (Secy. State Of. Trenton, Book 5, pg. 
249). His tombstone at the Old Stone Church shows that he 
died December 22, 1745, aged 75 years.

Ellen E., dau. of W. O. Lewis. He is a partner in the

of Morristown, N. J., an old friend, has written this 
sketch of Mr. Ogden which we think it but just to insert. 
Mr. Ogden is a fine illustration of a man of remarkable 
executive ability and widespread business relations, win- 
ning success by the utmost diligence and closest attention 
to ah the details of his calling, at the same time giving 
unstintedly of his best thought and energy to various re- 
ligious and philanthropic interests. While still in his 
young manhood, Mr. Ogden became a devoted worker in 
the Sunday School cause, first in Brooklyn, N. Y., and 
now for many years, as the head of the great Sabbath 
School connected with the "Holland Memorial Presby- 
terian Church, " in Philadelphia. His indomitable energy. 
Christian enthusiasm and wise business judgment have 
made that school one of the model Sunday Schools of our 
land. Its membership is upwards of 1,500. As an elder

in the church Mr. Ogden has not only made himself a 
power in the moral and religious life of his church and 
city, but also in the interests of the church at large. For 
a number of years, he has served as a member of the 
Board of Ministerial Relief of the Presbyterian Church, 
and none more efficiently than he. Many years ago Mr. 
Ogden became deeply interested in the work of Hampton 
Institute in Hampton, Ya. With his customary unsel- 
fishness and earnestness, he worked for the success of the 
cause, and to no one did the late Gen. Armstrong, the 
noble founder of that institution, look with greater confi- 
dence for counsel and aid, than to his devoted personal 
friend and co-worker, the Philadelphian christian mer- 
chant. And so in every sphere, where duty called him, 
Mr. Ogden has shown the same unselfish devotion and 
wise Christian judgment, a "man of affairs " in the high- 
est and best sense.
